Hop, hop! Time for the April Bunny Blog Hop!

Welcome to the April Bunny Blog Hop hosted by Made by JacquelineIf you are here from Julie's Blog then you are in the right spot. If you would like to start at the beginning please click HERE

In honor of Easter we are all making a project with a bunny on it.

So, straight from the kitchen of my favorite Chinese restaurant, here is my project:

I made an Egg Roll!

Oh, LOL, just kidding. 

What I really made was a spinner card where the Easter Egg rolls down the lawn in front of the Easter Bunny.  In fact, I made seven of them in no time at all ... and I'll be sharing them in an Easter Card Exchange that's coming up too. (Don't you love it when one of your projects serves double-duty?!) 

Here is my card:

Want to know how to make this
easy-peasy Spinner Card?

Watch this video tutorial I made
featuring this card:

I have made a template for the spinner card's cut.  The template is printed on acetate in a variety of sizes, so you can just trace it with a pencil and then cut.  The template, along with a kit to make a half-dozen of your own Egg Roll spinner cards, will be given to one lucky follower.  Just be or become a CardMonkey follower and leave me a comment that includes a way to get in touch with you! I will allow "Randy" at Random.Org to chose a winner on April 6, so please get your comments posted in time.

Your next stop is --- NATALIYA
